Robbins Pond, Devens, MA


Robbins Pond is situated along Barnum and Robbins Pond Roads and, best described as, a shallow pond with a steep embankment on its southern side.

Being shallow, Robbins Pond is better known for its plant life than its water-based, recreational activities.  Its abundant outdoor seating and large gazebo area makes Robbins Pond a great spot for a picnic and to watch geese, ducks, and other waterfowl.

Nearer the road is a walking trail that swings around the pond to the Robbins Pond Road parking area.

Between the pond and Barnum Road is a hollow rock-like structure called the “pill box” that was used for military exercises; the hollowed out area is large enough for a man to hide.
